Lecce is welcoming Parma to Via del Mare in round 38 in Italian Serie A.
Lecce has won their last game in Serie A, and with that, they bought themselves a chance at staying in Serie A. With 35 points, Lecce is in 18th place, which is in the relegation zone, but they are only 1 point away from safety. The only option for Lecce is to win this game and hoping that Genoa won’t win their game. In their last Serie A game against Udinese on the road, Lecce was the better team with 54% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and high 90% of the correct passes. This was easily one of the best games that Lecce has played this season, and it came at the perfect time. Lecce has won this match 1-2. Lecce has scored 49 goals so far this season, which is solid, but their defense has been an absolute disaster with massive 81 conceded goals. Mancosu has scored 14 goals for Lecce, while Lapadula added 10 goals. Falco has 6 assists. Deiola is injured, but Babacar, Farias, Lapadula, Mancosu, and Calderoni are all still questionable for this game. Lecce was fighting to stay in Serie A until the last game, but now they are playing against a solid team that doesn’t need anything anymore this season, who knows, maybe the Gods of luck will smile at Lecce for one last time and grant them to stay in Serie A next season as well.
Parma is in 11th place in the standings with 46 points, 52 scored goals, and 54 conceded goals, far away from the relegation zone. This was a really good season for Parma, and everyone at the club is happy with their result. Parma has been mostly struggling after the restart, but they were able to win a few games just to make sure they will stay in Serie A. in their last Serie A game against Atalanta, Parma has had 42% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and 80% of accurate passes. Parma was leading at half-time, but Atalanta has turned the game around in the second half, and in the end, Parma has lost this match 1-2. Cornelius has scored 11 goals for Parma this season, while Kulusevski added 10 goals and 8 assists. Gervinho added 7 goals and 6 assists for Parma this season. Scozzarella, Cornelius, Hernani, Grassi, Brugman, and Karamoh are all injured, and they will not be playing in this match. Parma has been through a lot over the last 10 years, but they are on the right way to get back to their olden days of glory, even though that road is long, Parma is doing everything right, and we can expect some good results from them in the future.
Parma is the better team here overall, but their form has been bad. Lecce has barely had some success against Parma, and I’m not sure they have what it takes to get the job done here, even though their Serie A survival is at stake. Taking everything into consideration, I will pick something on goals here.
